HOW TO: Megane Ph 1 to Ph 2 Rear Lights Conversion...

Postby Nige » Thu Apr 22, 2010 5:57 pm

Hi Guy's

As by some demand a few people has asked me to put up photos of how i done my tail light conversion...here is a few snaps with details...

Hope this helps!

Phase 1 Lights
Image

Phase 2 Lights
Image

The Guide...

1. Firstly unscrew the tail lights from both sides and disconnect the plugs...

2. Cut the wires off plug off (Leave as much wire length as you possibly can! on all!)

3. Get these connectors...obtainable from maplin shops (you need 13) 6 for the passenger side/7 for the driver side(UK) vice versa for Left hand drive..
Image

4. Strip the wire back about 1cm each...and crimp the connector on the wire (with wire crimps, scissor like things)

5. Put electrical tape around the connectors apart from the bit your plugging in (obviously) to avoid shorts when plugging wires in side by side... you will see like i have done in the photos.

5. PASSENGER SIDE (UK CARS)
Image
From the images (ALL BLACK WIRES ARE GROUND)

Top Bulb = Fog (Does not work on this side UK CARS)
Pin 1 = Ground
Pin 2 = Nothing (Either pin dosent matter, dead anyway)

Lower Cluster (Refering to Picture)
Pin 1 (Top) = White (Reversing Light)
Pin 2 = White (Indicator)
Pin 3 = Black (Ground)
Pin 4 = Orange (Brake Light)
Pin 5 (Bottom) = Brown and Blue (Side Light's)

There is 2 white non-colour coded wires...dont be afraid to test as its trial and error...you may have to swap around...example...reversing light may be indicator bulb..you get the drift just swap pin 2 to 3, 3 to 2.....

DRIVER SIDE

There is now 3 white wires to deal with...again this is trail and error....you cant blow anything so dont be scared!! it's actually quite fun!

Image

Top Bulb = Fog (works on this side UK CARS)
Pin 1 = White
Pin 2 = Black (Ground)

Lower Cluster (Refering to Picture) (Same as passenger side)
Pin 1 (Top) = White (Reversing Light)
Pin 2 = White (Indicator)
Pin 3 = Black (Ground)
Pin 4 = Orange (Brake Light)
Pin 5 (Bottom) = Brown and Blue (Side Light's)

Happy Modding folks!!!! Enjoy!

Hope this helps you all! Really nice modification!! 30 min job

I wonder if people will start doing the Ph1 to Ph2 facelift like people did with the old Megane and Renault 19s.

wouldn't it make sense to mark all the white wires when you're taking the phase 1 lights to bits? Put little sticky labels on them so you know which lights they're for.

Good guide. I thought it would be a case of unplug one plug the new one in! What were Renault thinking?

I'm just a little confused. Do you still keep the connector of the old lights and plug it into the new ones?

Good guide. Typical of Renault to use white for two different functions (oh and I think they are different from right to left too!). I found this out the hard way fitting a towing bracket and 12N trailer plug. Inside the car, I had to strip the insulation from one of the whites and meter it with brake/indicator/etc on to tell one from the other.

Personally, I prefer the look of the phase 1 lights (that nice slanting sidelamp)...

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!

I've fitted mine today, passenger side with a bit of trial and error which was in fact fun, perfect!
The drivers side I got it all to work except the side light doesnt work when lights are turned on but works when brake is pressed, any ideas?

Did mine today - I must say it must have been the easiest mod so far, carried out in between attending the builder's as well.

Tail lamp and brake lamp are the easiest to do (as well as the earth) as the wires are the same colour on both plugs (assuming you use the plug off an car with the newer lights fitted as I did). It's the indicator, reverse, and fog lamp that you need to test for as the wires to these are all white!

I left the original plugs in place as well - I just used scotch lock connectors.

Does anyone out there make and sell direct plug and use replacement connectors to simplify the upgrade for the people that don’t like fiddling with their cars , anyone fancy making one for me I will pay
